The Chronicles of Narnia

Narnia.  "Now then, where to begin?  Ah yes..."  I have always loved Narnia.  When I was younger I think that I kind of connected with Lucy the most, probably because I was close to her age.  I still love Lucy so much, she has such faith, hope, and trusts Aslan, even when her siblings don't.

 She never gives up and is so brave.  As in the words of Aslan, "If you were any braver, you'd be a lioness."  I love that quote.  I love her relationship with Aslan, its how we are supposed to have with Jesus, trust Him with all of our heart, believe that He is going to take care of every thing, and seek Him, even when you are the only one, you will find Him.

I love the others too, each in their own way.  But my ultimate favorite is...Aslan.  I am so glad that C.S. Lewis put Him in.  In what better way than a Lion?  He is the Lion and the Lamb, the Ultimate sacrifice.  There is so much Jesus in these stories that I LOVE.  Him giving up his own life for Edmund, rising again and conquering death once and for all. 

Sure they think that the snow is melting because of the kids being there, but I think it wouldn't have melted if it weren't for Aslan being there.  I mean, He is the one that sang the whole world into being. (I love that) He is the one who made the animals talk.  And yet, it was man (even though it was a kid) who let a witch/giant be awoken and come into Narnia. 

I honestly wish He was in it even more, I love Aslan.  I love how at The Last Battle Lucy says, "In our world, too, a stable once held something inside it that was bigger that our whole world."  Yes, and that is why we celebrate Christmas, because of Jesus's birth.  As it is coming closer, I get so tired of hearing and seeing "Happy Holidays," NO!!  It is supposed to be "Merry Christmas."  Even today some one said "Happy Holidays," to me and my mom, and my mom said, "Merry Christmas," in reply.  I am so done with people trying to leave Jesus out of Christmas.  It is called CHRISTtmas, and it is when we celebrate HIS birth.  Ughh.   Sorry for that little outburst, just needed to get that off my chest.

Back to Narnia.  Now I am going to do some C.S. Lewis quotes I love.



He has so many great quotes!  Thank you so much for reading!  Please, go check out Abby's blog for all kinds of posts about C.S. Lewis and Narnia.  Happy early Thanksgiving everybody!  I hope you have a wonderful one!

My Favorite TV Shows

Hello everyone! SOOO I decided to do a post on some of my favorite TV shows to watch (Thanks Olivia:).  Here we go!

On my last post I mentioned getting into Alaskan Bush People recently, and I love it!  This is one of only two shows that I am currently keeping up with.  The other is the Holiday Baking Championship, although, right now I am not happy with them.  I'm not happy, Bob, not happy.  Ask me why...because they eliminated my favorite baker!  I was so upset, it was so wrong.  But I still want to see who will win, and for that I will probably keep watching. :)

Fixer Upper is an awesome show, Chip and Joanna take old messed up houses and turn them into something awesome!  I really like to watch this over the other shows like it on HGTV, I like that they are Christians, and they are nicer to each other then people can be on those other shows.  And I also really like Joanna's style, she mixes some old things with new things, which I love!

I love House Hunters!  Especially the international ones.  I like to see where people move to, how much it is, and what the places look like around the world.

I actually first watched this on Netflix, and I love it!  Its clean, nice, and I love Jack Thornton!
It is also based of the books by Janette Oke, the same author of the Love Comes Softly books.

Some TV shows that are no longer on but I found, and watched and loved were, North and South, and BBC's Robin Hood.  So, I actually started to watch both of these because of Richard Armitage.  And I love both of them!  They are both so different, on one hand he gets the girl in one, and not in the other.  They were both really good and I am glad that I got to watch them.

One of my favorite Channels is TCM (Turner Classic Movies), I prefer to watch the really old ones on there, like 1959 and under.  This last weekend me my mom and my sister watched The Enchanted Cottage, and o my goodness!  It was wonderful.  I just loved it, if you haven't seen it I highly recommend it.

Thank you so much for reading! I would love to know what some of your favorite TV shows are, and if we have any that are the same!  Also, I think it would be fun to go ahead and do an Ask Me Anything.  So, if you have any questions for me, please leave them below, and I will answer them in a couple weeks.  And please, feel free to ask as many questions you like!  I can't wait to read them. :)

Until next time, Morgan

A Change

Hello everyone!  Well, here we are already in November, it's kind of hard to believe.  Time goes by so fast.  So, I decided it would be good to change the blog look.  Since this header was liked the most, I decided to do it first, though it will probably change again later to one of the other ones. :)

Isn't that pretty?  Thank you Pinterest! :)

Lately, I've been watching Alaskan Bush People.  Have any of you seen it?  I have been really enjoying it.  I found all of the episodes on YouTube, and the new season started last night.

If you haven't seen it, it is about a family of nine, and the parents raised their kids in the Alaskan Bush.  There are five boys and two girls.  The more I watch them, the more I like each of them for who they are.  If you have watched it, let me know who some of your favorites are.  And if you want to watch it, it's on the Discovery channel.

From left to right; Snowbird, Bear, Gabe, Billy, Ami, Noah, Matt, Bam, and Rainy.

If any of you have an idea for any posts that you would like to see,  just let me know down in the comments.  I don't really have any idea's right now, maybe an Ask Me Anything?  I don't know if I have enough followers for that.  Let me know! :)

  In a couple of weeks though, Ms. Abigail at Castles In The Air will be hosting a party for C. S. Lewis's Birthday!  If you'd like to check out her blog, and see all of the details, just click on her name or the Castles In The Air above.

Thank you so much for reading! :D
